It is with great sadness that I relay the passing
of Chi Chi (Catherine) Harley, loving wife of John Ryan ('75)
and a key player in the Pius X Alumni Association. John was
the founder of the association and Chi Chi attended most of
the events in 2010-2012.
For those who had never met Chi Chi, she was a wonderful,
charming and outgoing person and the perfect partner for JR.
Chi spent the past few years bravely battling breast cancer
and after a number of setbacks over the past few months, she
lost her battle during the early morning hours of Wednesday

Do you remember...
Invitation to the Dedication of St. Pius X - 1961
Invitation to the 2nd Annual Commencement Ceremony at St. Pius X - 1965
everybody recognizes the picture to the left, taken 11/15/2011.
Yes, the proud lady still stands erect. But what about the
following recent pictures of what should be familiar sights
to many of us. Granted, time has not be too kind to any of
these structures, but who remembers what they use to be and
their relative importance to anyone who had attended St. Pius.
